Welcome to March, loyal readers. Thank you for being here.
This week’s issue explores the effects of losing or lacking connection. The lead article, “Unspeakable Pain: What Doctors Don’t Hear
,” examines the ethical dilemmas medical interpreters face when doctors and patients do not share a common language. In the second piece, “When Black Excellence Isn’t Enough
,” a Black graduate student seeks common ground with her Black peers in a predominantly white elite university. If you have time, I suggest reading both articles as a pair. Though entirely different, they talk to each other.
Then comes a thoughtful video on the 10th anniversary of Trayvon Martin, followed by a profile of a champion auctioneer facing the demise of his industry. If you’re taking a respite from reading, good thing I’ve included an outstanding podcast for you – about Siegfried and Roy. Please enjoy!
